Thank you for your interest in teaching EQ7. We are happy to provide you with information about setting up an EQ7 classroom. Please read the prerequisites outlined below.
Here’s an overview of how it will work. Please *think through* the logistics of these steps before agreeing to the teaching position.
What You Will Need
EQ Teacher CD (included in the Teacher Packet which we will mail to you–allow time for this)
Ability to receive files via email
Ability to copy the file sent by email and install it on all classroom machines after using the Classroom CD
Ability to evaluate the classroom computers for the EQ7 system requirements.
What is the Teacher CD?
Included in the EQ Teacher Packet, the Teacher CD is a complete (but “dead”) EQ7 program. You install the program on computer lab computers prior to the class. Then bring the program to life by installing the file we will send to you no more than 2 weeks before your class. This will allow each student to use EQ7 during your class!
Compressed or Uncompressed?
We can email a compressed ZIP file (957 KB) which could be copied from computer to computer with a CD or thumb drive. (Each classroom computer would then need a utility for uncompressing the file.) OR we can send an uncompressed file (3.85 MB) which can be burned to a CD or copied to a USB flash drive. EQ teachers are expected to be computer savvy enough to uncompress files, move files from computer to computer, deal with file extensions and renaming files, etc., without calling us for step-by-step instructions for this part.
How Do I Get the CD and What Does It Cost?
We will be happy to mail you the Teacher CD for just the shipping and handling fee of $10.00, in hopes of inspiring many new Electric Quilt users. We thank you for your support and wish you the best with your class.
To order an EQ Teacher Packet for $10, please call 1-800-356-4219 (M-F/ 9-5 Eastern time). You may also email firstname.lastname@example.org or place your order online through your retailer account.
Then, two weeks or less before a class, contact email@example.com asking to be emailed the file to “turn on” the Teacher CD you got in your EQ Teacher Packet. Specify whether you want the compressed or uncompressed file.
THIS STEP IS CRUCIAL! Two weeks or less before a class, contact firstname.lastname@example.org asking to be emailed the file to “turn on” the Teacher CD you got in your EQ Teacher Packet. Specify the compressed or uncompressed file.
